Ex-cop convicted in Floyd case asks for a new trial




Former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin found guilty of murdering African-American George Floyd, is asking the court for a new trial. This is reported by NBC.





The request was filed by Chauvin's lawyer, Eric Nelson. According to the appeal, the accused's right to a fair trial was not exercised during the trial, as the jury was subject to “biased publicity of the case” and intimidation.

On May 25, 2020, police officers in Minneapolis, Minnesota, detained an African-American man, George Floyd. During the arrest, police officer Derek Chauvin knelt on the man's neck. Floyd shouted that he was suffocating, but the law enforcement officers did not pay attention to this.

As a result of the incident, the man died in intensive care, after his death, a wave of protests swept the world.

In April of this year, a jury found Chauvin guilty of second-and third-degree murder, as well as causing Floyd's death by second-degree negligence.
